Buddhism is based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, better known as Lord Buddha, while Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus. Followers of Buddhism see Buddha as an enlightening and inspiring being. He has provided his people with instructions to achieve salvation. And release from the cycle of rebirth. Followers of Christianity follow the ten commandments and the Bible and adhere to these rules and teachings.

Christians also deem that Jesus came to earth to free us from our sins. He suffered so that we didn’t have to. Buddhists believe in the power of physical exercises, such as yoga or meditation, as tools to achieve enlightenment. There are also rules for ethical conduct and altruism, renunciation, the practice of wisdom, and the belief in karma. Both religions have specific policies for and against immorality.

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the whole world. The religion is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christians believe Jesus Christ came to the world to free man from sins by reconnecting us back to our creator i.e., God. Jesus Christ, as portrayed in the Bible, lived a sinless life, and he emphasized more on the subject of faith.

The concept of faith in Christianity as a means of connecting to God so we can have access to spiritual gifts and heavenly blessings. On the other hand, Buddhism is centered on the philosophies and teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. Lord Buddha or Siddhartha Gautama is usually regarded as an enlightened being.

Followers of this religion believe they can as well attain this state of pureness and awakening by adhering strictly with certain instructions of the religion in order to achieve salvation. In Buddhism, there are two major sects, Mahayana and Hinayana. Also, in Christianity, there are different denominations, but the major ones are the Protestants, Orthodox, and Catholic.
